THE CALUMET NEWS. PAGE THREE. Hancock Department SHRINERS ARE AT WORK ON PLANS HANCOCK AND OTHER MICHIGAN SITES WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR FRATERNALf CITY. The most pretentious undertaking ever attempted by a fraternal body in this country Is now being worked out toy a special committee of the Imper ial Council, NoblcH of the Myotic Shrine, looking towards the establish ment ;f a permanent headquarters of tho order. In scope the plan is gi gantic for It Includes the Incorpora tion of a new city and the erection of a convention building with a seat ing capacity of 25,000, nit of which lias tt particular significance to Mich igan for tho reason that tho head quarters may bo located In tills state. At the last conclave of the order held In Ilochester a resolution was adopted providing for tho appoint ment of a special committee to se cure a site for a permanent head quarters, the reasons urged being that owing to the great numbers which ; attend tho annual conclave no city is ablo to provide the requisite com forts and that the members who do attend uro subjected to exorbitant rates. . Fred A. Hincs of Is Angeles, Cal., who was leaving the office of imperial potentate, was prevailed upon to nc cept tho chairmanship of this com mittee, his associates being John W Uoyle, Utlca; Frank C Itoundy,' Chi cago; Uoorgc W. Mctlandless. Pitts burgh; and Edwin Peltarr, Norman, Okla. Tho members of this committee got together and decided on the essen tials of the site they wanted In the way of size and location. In a quiet way the committee let it bo known that 5,000 acres of land would bo need ed and for tho purposes Intended It would have to be as close to the cen ter of population as possible. Hancock Has a Site. Tho committee already has looked over several sites, but has not finish ed Its work. Members of the com mittee visited Hancock some weeks ago, coming down from Duluth by boat, but could not stay long enough to look over a site near here. whlcVi, it Is said, will bo offered. They stat ed, however, that they would come again, so Hancock may bo considered as a likely candidate for the honor of becoming the great national head quarters of the Shrlners. The plans that the committee have in mind seem like a dream, but they are bard-headed business men wno have gone over the matter very care fully and while they admit that it is a big proposition Insist mat u can be carried out to the letter as there are 127 shrines of the order In the United States and Canada with membership of 200,000. In a general way it Is proposed to secure 5,000 acres of land, easy of access from all parts of the country, which will be incorporated as a city or village, so that the imperial council can mako its own ordinances. Upon this prop nrtv It 1.4 nronoset 1 to first build i convention hall and administration building, capable of seating 25,000 people, which will also bo used for balls and other social affairs. It is proposed to improve the property by .providing golf courses, a game rvp. athletic field, etc. In addition every shrine will be given from live to 10 acres of land upon which to build a club house and upon which the k-u nnn huild their summer Illt-iu ;t The proposed plan has been taken up with great enthusiasm iy inoioe... nn.i tho eommlttee is determine a site to the imperial council In June, so that work can be commenced without delay. State in Good Portion. xt occupies a strategic posl f-r tho reason that it la prac tically the center of population, can be reached from the easi mm bv both railroads nnd steamer, has an ideal summer climate wltu mnn u n,i flshlng. It is conserva tively estimated that 100,000 people will spend their summers m . .... perlal headquarters as everything pos sible will be done to attract them with none of the annoyances that now i nnnual conclaves. What such an enterprise means to 'Michigan can hardly be estimated, but the transportation companies are alive to the proposition ana ne num bers of the committee will be shown the best that Michigan has. Members of the committee not only .i.. i n, feasible, but think rcgan. - ; - -..,,it,imn WUI that otner iarKu . n,n around that It win rolvo tho hotel problem and give the members much more comfort for l money.
